The City of Frisco’s dedicated bike-ways include designated routes, multi-use paths and off-road soft surface biking trails.
Designated bike routes are identified on roadways by green Bike Route signs. These signs are most commonly found at intersections on major and minor roads. As a bicyclist approaches one of these intersections, they will see a green Bike Route sign with arrows indicating which direction the bike route continues.
May Use Full Lane Signs
Many roadways in Frisco display bicycle May Use Full Lane signage. The signs serve as a reminder to motorists and bicyclists that state law gives bicyclists the right to occupy the outside travel lane on a road. These signs are installed where travel lanes are too narrow for a vehicle to safely pass a bicycle in the same lane. Motorists should change lanes in these areas to pass a bicyclist. The regulatory sign at right denotes the bicyclist has the right to occupy the entire outside travel lane.
Share The Road Signs
A few roads in Frisco have the yellow Share The Road signs. On these sections of roadway, the outside travel lane is at least 14’ wide, and a vehicle can legally stay in that lane to pass a bicyclist if it is safe to do so. Whenever possible, it is best for motorists to change lanes to pass a bicyclist.
Both motorists and bicyclists are responsible for following the rules of the road. When we work together and share the road, we can all travel safer.
Frisco’s multi-use paths are physically separated from streets for non-motorized travel, and are shared by bikes, pedestrians, runners, skaters and non-motorized scooters. Multi-use paths are paved surfaces and found mainly within our parks (PDF).

The property is owned by the City of Frisco and maintained by the above local cycling groups. All-City of Frisco rules and regulations apply. Although the trail was built as a mountain bike trail, walkers and runners are encouraged to use the trail as well.
